The Ultimate Snack

protein bar

Christie Ossington Neighbourhood Centre

A food bar for many purposes

Second only to the invention of the Hoverboard in the past century, is the protein bar.   This super convenient food stick can be a snack or meal, consumed morning, noon or night, at home, work or in transit.  It’s perfect post-workout, pre-workout, during a meeting, during breastfeeding, or when you’re just too lazy for anything else.  No prep and no clean up.

It’s also the perfect snack for our food insecure neighbours during this pandemic.  Christie Ossington Neighbourhood Centre (CONC) is a local men’s homeless shelter.  They’ve been open 24/7 during the COVID-19 crisis and they’ve sent 46 of their members off to the Toronto isolation hotels to self quarantine.  Now, they’re putting the call out for some snack support for these men.

How you can help

The men in self isolation are in need of healthy snacks.  We want to send each of them a box of Pure Protein bars (6 bars/pack) for $7.97 each.  A small gesture to help our neighbours satisfy their hunger and feel a little stronger – maybe not physically, but mentally.

Troop Started a Year Ago – Is it Working?

It was a year ago this month that I started Troop. The idea was simple. I believed that if more neighbours knew about the needs in their area then they would be more willing to help. I believed (and still do!) that more people want to help

Is COVID-19 Actually A Good Thing?

COVID-19? A good thing? No. Hell no. But damn there is a seriously bright silver lining here and I hope I’m not the only one squinting. Devastation caused by the coronavirus has reached all corners of the world, but so has a level of compassion that we haven’t seen in decades, if ever.
